Choose any Vauxhall Mokka with a petrol combustion engine, and you’ll benefit from great fuel economy. But if you're looking for low running costs, then the Mokka Electric is the one to go for.

Vauxhall claims the basic 99bhp petrol Mokka with its six-speed manual gearbox will return up to 51.3mpg. There's no efficiency penalty if you opt for the extra power of the 134bhp version because it's capable of 51.4mpg. If you prefer to have the eight-speed automatic, you'll see a best of 47.9mpg (on the WLTP combined cycle), although when we tested in this particular version of the Mokka, it averaged 38.6mpg.

The CO2 levels for the petrol cars range from 124g/km to 132g/km, with Benefit-in-Kind (BiK) tax rates for company car drivers stand at between 29 and 31 per cent.

For business users, the Mokka Electric benefits from lower Benefit-in-Kind (BIK) rates, plus it is exempt from road tax (VED) and the London Congestion Charge until 2025. Until recently, the Mokka Electric featured a 50kWh battery and offered a range of up to 209 miles, but a revised model unveiled in 2023 uses a new 54kWh battery for a much more competitive 252-mile range. That said, the new Hyundai Kona Electric will cover 305 miles on a single charge.

If you can find a rapid charger capable of supplying 100kWh of charging speed, you can charge from 20 to 80 per cent in less than half an hour. Refilling a flat battery at home using a 7kW wallbox will take eight hours.

Insurance groups

Insurance premiums for the Mokka shouldn’t break the bank, with entry-level 1.2 Turbo 100 Design in group 14 and higher-spec models in groups 20 and 21. Meanwhile, the Mokka Electric falls into groups 21-22.

If you want something with lower insurance premiums, look at the SEAT Arona, because the 1.0-litre models start in group nine, and go up to group 12.

Depreciation

According to our latest expert data, over a typical three-year/36,000-mile ownership period, the Mokka should maintain between 48-51% of its value. That’s alright, but the Ford Puma 1.0 EcoBoost 125 ST-Line X auto will retain 59 per cent of its value, while the Volkswagen T-Cross in 1.0 110 Move trim will hold onto 61% over the same period. 

The Mokka Electric is only predicted to be worth between 33-36 per cent, which is very disappointing next to the 58 per cent of the ‘2’ specification Kia Niro EV.
